| || Supply Chain Graduate Scheme |
| || EDF Energy is a core part of the EDF Group and is one of the largest energy companies in Europe with key business operations in France, the UK, Germany and Italy. In the UK we have approximately 15,000 employees. We are the UK’s leading generator and supplier of low carbon energy. We produce about one-fifth of the nation’s electricity from our nuclear, coal and gas power stations, wind farms, and combined heat and power plants. We have a focus on safe, dependable energy generation and an ethos of service excellence. We intend to play a leading role in new nuclear build in the UK and secure a ‘bright’ future for the combined business and its employees. |
| || Generating electricity is a huge responsibility, which is why we want experienced engineers to help us deliver this. From nuclear power stations to coal, gas and renewables, our work extends to the full energy mix. The roles we offer within each of those areas are every bit as diverse. At EDF Energy, we’re on a journey to change the way people use energy for generations to come. Producing low carbon energy is what we do best. And right now, our eight existing nuclear sites generate 9,000 megawatts per year through various reactors, avoiding emissions of over 40m tonnes of carbon dioxide. That’s the equivalent of taking about 60% of cars off our roads. Our thermal generation assets are our Cottam and West Burton stations. With almost 45 years of generation, our coal stations still have an important role to play – together with our new Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) and Gas Storage Plants supporting an affordable and secure supply of electricity as the UK transitions to a low carbon economy. Our plan now is to secure strategic flexibility and maximise the long-term value of thermal energy within the EDF Energy portfolio. |
| || Ours is an industry that is changing quickly and taking on more and more importance. Climate change, security of supply, the need for new infrastructure – all of these will affect the energy industry in the years to come. But as the largest generator of low carbon electricity in the UK, EDF Energy is perfectly placed to tackle such issues. This is an open invitation to explore a major business that's growing in size, influence and profile – and explore it fully. |
| || Supporting the operation of EDF Energy’s existing fleet of power stations poses many unique and commercial challenges to our Supply Chain teams. With an annual spend of over £600m in over 50 market areas, the EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Supply Chain team is at the core of ensuring the correct goods and services are ordered, are delivered safely, are of high quality, arrive on site at the optimum time at the best price possible. On site the supply chain teams are an integral part of the power station’s operation. These teams are responsible for the safe and efficient working of up to 1,000 contract personnel during outages. The materials management team runs up to a 24hr warehouse operation and expedites part deliveries from suppliers to support on site work. Other disciplines include procurement engineering, commercial buying, and corporate supply. |
| || During this two year scheme, you will complete attachments in the different areas of Supply Chain and have the opportunity to see what life is like in a nuclear power station. The scheme has been designed to expose you to Supply Chain’s work ensuring continual improvement in a nuclear context, as well as giving you an opportunity to understand the wider business.
At the end of the programme the experience you have gained working at the Head Office and at our power stations will prepare you to apply for a role within our Generation Business Unit based at Gloucester, at one of our power stations, or even within another part of the EDF Group in a supply chain position.
There are a number of roles which could be of interest to you, including: Supply Chain Analyst, Procurement Specialist, Supply Chain Specialist, Supplier Development Engineer, or Contract Manager.
